The Firsts lost to Leverstock Green by 60 runs. Bowled out for 190 chasing 250 for 8, Rob Lankester top-scored with 57. Earlier Toby Fynn had taken 3 of the visitors’ wickets to fall.

The second part of the double-header also went Leverstock Green’s way. Owen Hughes took 2 wickets and Rupert and Fergus Martin 1 each as L-G racked-up 295 for 4 against Reed’s Second XI. Richard Barlow led the reply with 80 for Reed supported by Chis Jackson’s 45 but the task was too much and the innings ended at 200 for 5.

Mid-week rain had prevented the outfield at Freman College to be fit for play and the Thirds’ match against Old Albanian was cancelled.
